Glentromie is a little confusing whisky brand produced by The Speyside Distillery Company.
It was introduced in 1994 as blended malt, but most of 21st Century bottlings carry single malt distinction. The Speyside Distillery, built by George Christie, started producing whisky in 1990. In 2013 it was acquired by Harvey’s of Edinburgh International with Taiwanese backing. It is not clear where the whisky bottled as Glentromie single malt is coming from, but an educated guess points to the Speyside Distillery. The name of the whisky refers to the River Tromie, the distillery water source.
Nose: malty, with delicate sherry notes, toffee, caramel, milk chocolate, mixed nuts and almonds, prunes, cherries, dash of pepper and oak.
Palate: roasted nuts, dried apricots, prunes, caramel, toffee, hints of cinnamon, pepper and nutmeg and notes of sherried oak.
Finish: medium long, nutty, with notes of dried fruit, nutmeg and oak.
